A wonderful sugar free treat for your kids (or your own) lunchbox.
These bars are super easy to make and they are really tasty.
If your school is nut free then just substitute seeds as needed.
VEGAN SUPER BARS (as named by my daughter)
aka NUT BARS
1 1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup dessicated coconut
2 Tablespoons sunflower seeds
2 Tablespoons pepitas
150g soft silken tofu
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Blend the tofu, maple syrup and apple sauce together until smooth and creamy.
Smash the nuts. I find it easiest to do this in a sandwich bag, using a 'meat' mallet.
Combine the oats, nuts, seeds, coconut and tofu mixture together in a bowl and stir until well combined.
Pour into a lined 20cm x 30cm lamington tin.
Bake in a preheated 160C oven for 40-45 minutes until browned and mixture holds together.
Cool before slicing.
Makes 14 pieces (depending on the size you cut them too).
Wrap in foil and decorative paper for added lunchbox appeal! ;-)
Best served with 'dolphin fruit' ;-)
